A few nights ago, I recorded the Twenty-third Moon. Next month will be the twenty-fourth......two years of full moons. If she is visible next month, I will take the last of these photographs - I think they have served some arcane purpose and I probably will have got something out of my system - I'm not actually sure quite what!
The different moods of the twenty-third moon.
Back to more down-to-earth matters: a bit over a year ago, I worked out how to knit a little elephant using four needles and knitting in the round - I wrote down the bare instructions in a kind of knitters' shorthand, then promptly mislaid them. Recently, I found them again, so I knitted up another little elephant. This time I positioned him on all fours instead of with "arms" and legs like a teddy-bear. I've had a few requests to offer this as a pattern, so that means knitting another one and taking progress photos. I will then be able to offer this little elephant as a downloadable PDF pattern in my Etsy store (www.susiemcmahon.etsy.com). Needless to say, I find knitted toys so very comforting and such FUN to make.
I have a few other ideas for PDF tutorials for my store that I plan to work on in the next few months.
The knitting pattern - found!
